Where does my path start?
You will complete an Associate of Arts - Direct Transfer Agreement (AA-DTA) Major Related Program (MRP) at Shoreline. The AA-DTA requires a minimum of 90 quarter credits in college-level courses numbered 100 or above with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher. Each individual course must have a minimum grade of 1.0.
Once you complete your Shoreline degree, you can transfer to a four-year school to earn a baccalaureate degree in Construction Management. Entry into Construction Management majors is selective. Students typically require higher minimum overall GPA than the minimum 2.0 for the general DTA. Each four-year college establishes minimum GPA requirements for the overall degree and for the specified course. Students need to check criteria for selection by checking with the institution.
About the AA-DTA MRP in Construction Management
The AA-DTA, known as the direct transfer degree, is an agreement between Washington state community colleges and baccalaureate institutions. The credits earned in the AA-DTA transfer as a package to most baccalaureate colleges and universities in Washington, satisfying most, if not all, of the lower division general education requirements and granting junior standing; it does not guarantee admission. The AA-DTA Major Related Program (MRP) prepares students for entrance into construction management majors at particular four-year schools. The MRP requires specific courses, and will be shown on your transcript as a different type of degree than the general AA-DTA.
